This is my first time here and I need help.
I live in the Philippines. Sleep clinics are very few here, but anyway, I found one, and I was prescribed a cpap machine.
I ordered and got the s9 resmed autoset from the United States, but it didn't come with the humidifier ( I don't know why?). But it's very humid here anyway, so I don't think I will need to use the humidifier.
My questions are ( pls help...)
1. Do I really need the humidifier?
2. If I don't, where do I attach the hose on the cpap unit? I don't see any place in the device to attach the tube into?
3. My doctors report says " the recording is consistent with severe obstructive sleep apnea that improved with cpap at 12 cm of water.. The patient should use nasal cpap at the above named pressure with appropriate masks and fittings"
Is 12 cm the pressure? How do I set that or is the machine already set for me when I bought it and sent my prescription?
I am getting very confused. Please help anyone...
